PREFACE. 



Among the various civil jurisdictions exercised by the Ecclesiastical 
Courts prior to the Reformation was that of adjudicating in Con- 
sistorial causes or actions relating to marriage, legitimacy and 
divorce. The only records of that period now preserved in the 
General Register House are the Registers of two Officialates of St. 
Andrews for the years 1512-1552 and 1541-1554, excerpts from 
which were printed by the Abbotsford Club in 1845. 

In -1560 the jurisdiction of these Courts was abolished and on 
the institution of the Commissary Court in 1563-4 these cases were 
made over to the Commissaries of Edinburgh, who continued judges 
therein until 1830, when these matters were transferred to the 
Court of Session. 

The Record of these proceedings before 1658 will be found 
mixed up with those of the ordinary Court, but after that date the 
processes have been kept in separate bundles, and from 1684 the 
Extracted Decreets are contained in a different Register. These 
Processes and Decreets form the subject of this Index. 

The Processes include Actions for Divorce, both on the ground 
of desertion or adultery, Separation and Aliment, Declarator of 
Marriage or Legitimacy, Declarator of Freedom or Putting to 
Silence, Adherence, Reduction of Edicts of Executry, Nullity of 
Marriage, Reduction and Improbation and Scandal or Damages for 
Slander. When the decree has been extracted a reference is given 
to the volume and page where the same will be found. When there 
is only a decreet and no process there is stated to be " No 



warrants."
